Paxton Agonistes

Good article from The Texas Observer on Ken Paxton as the symptom but not the disease infecting Texas politics. We have no civic culture anymore. We’re like a former Soviet Republic or recently independent Third World colony. We had the worst voter turnout in the country in 2014. In fact, we are at or near dead last by every measurement of civic engagement. Put simply, Texans don’t give a shit. As a result, our corrupt elections are dominated by a small cadre of fanatics and produce ethical eunuchs like Ken Paxton.
